Warbirds Wings & Wheels 12 & Swap Meet for 2021
Registrations for our annual Warbirds Wings & Wheels event, scheduled for Saturday, May 8th, 2021, are now open! This unique car show is held in the midst of Estrella Warbirds Museum in Paso Robles. It’s not only a great photo op location with cars parked next to your favorite warbird/s, but it’s an ever growing event which ultimately helps fund the operations of Estrella Warbirds Museum, Paso Robles’ home grown aviation and automotive museum. It’s a family affair!
Warbirds Wings & Wheels – A Brief History
The original Warbirds Wings & Wheels event was held on May 9th, 2009. At that time, the museum had just finalized construction of the Brooks Building, a 4,900 square foot facility scheduled to house restored military vehicles. After much debate, it was decided to hold an Open House with the added attraction of a vintage and classic car show. Thousands of people showed up on short notice! Later that year, Dick Woodland opened the Woodland Auto Display at Estrella Warbirds Museum.
Little was it known back in 2009, that ten years later the car show would grow into a sizeable event attracting not only participants from many of the western states, but also world reknown race car drivers, automotive designers, builders and enthusiasts! In 2016, the event was immortalized when Dennis Gage featured Warbirds Wings & Wheels 8 on the nationally syndicated television show, “My Classic Car.
Noteables such as racing legends Parnelli Jones, Bobby Unser; HotRod designer, Bones Noteboom; Blackie Gejeian, TV personalities such as Dennis Gage and others have been special guests at the event or have supported the event over the years.
